This webpage offers helpful information about heterogeneous English 8 classes. At Blue Ridge Middle School, honors and academic English 8 students are instructed in the same classroom (heterogeneous classes). We have a steering committee to carefully study and monitor heterogeneous class methodologies in English 8 and to maintain a framework that facilitates communication, measurement, and consistent procedures and processes. All committee positions are currently filled. All meeting minutes will be posted on this webpage under the “Steering Committee Minutes” link.
Steering Committee Members:
Brion Bell, BRMS Principal
Matt Bolen, BRMS Assistant Principal
Karen Dillon, former PTO President
Pat Kinney, PhD., Consultant
Allyson White, BRMS 8th Grade English Teacher/Subject Area Lead Teacher
Karin Nixon, BRMS Dean
